Lini Sherburne (Sparks, MD) creates a 3-D design on a single nail tip using a variety of nail products based on a "music" theme.
"I chose one of my favorite bands: No Doubt, and one of their classic hits, "Spiderwebs" to be the inspiration behind my art. While searching the Internet for images related to the band, I saw a sheet of music for "Spiderwebs " and immediately noticed how much the bars of music looked like the title of the song: spiderwebs. I quickly decided that my nail would focus on bars of music that would transition into webs, ensnaring music notes within. The "tree" holding up the webs would be a treble clef, and since the tree is the base of the web, the nail itself would become the base of my design. The final element of the "Spiderwebs" theme was the spider. I wanted the entire design to flow together, so I placed the spider' s head as the center dot of the treble clef. I wanted to add an extra musical touch to my design, and so I used actual string from a guitar to create both the music bars and spider webs. The finished nail is bright, colorful and a little bit outrageous, all characteristics that truly describe the band' s style as well."
